I have zero problems with cosmetic microtransactions, nor should anyone else really, as some have said, though it's not f2p, it is updated, now and then lol.
I would have a problem with any purchase that gives an advantage, that goes for all games.

Jun 5, 2014Why do one Torment 6 rift when you could do two, or possibly three, torment 5 rifts?Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
Torment 6 isn't really worth it, unless you can absolutely face roll it, which most can't yet.
That's what we have found anyway, and we generally end up farming t4, or t5, but we are all capable of t6, but it's not worth it.
May 29, 2014It's a BiS weapon for a Lightning monk, and Lightning Barb.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The problem lies with fire doing so much more damage than lightning rather than the weapon, which was broke, not nerfed.
So, if you prefer playing lightning, then you just found a great weapon.

I don't use RiF, mainly because I prefer to actual play the game...with the buff you find far, far more legendaries by actually doing the rift as opposed to Kadala, that's just very slightly more targeted. Though I may do it as a runner so I can stop running out of keys all the time.Quote from Vaestmannaeyjar
"Last open" is so abused I never enter one, and I know a lot of people doing 3 man waiting for a victim to pay for their rift. They lose on speed, but they never pay for a rift after the first one.
But, why is this a problem? Well, I guess "last open" is with a 3 man group, but i'd advertise it as "you open", you are still getting the blood shards, so you aren't getting exploited, you are paying for em, and you always know you'd open, so if you join you know you are paying, but I agree if someone advertised that as "last one" and it's three clan members or whatever, that's kinda silly.

I actually do this also, if I fail to kill a goblin, then I know I'm not on an efficient difficulty.Quote from ruksak
Goblins provide me with a litmus test for my DPS relative to the difficulty I'm on. If I have sufficient DPS for the difficulty setting, I can take them out without issue. If I have my difficulty too high, it can be too difficult to take them out.
I'd like to see better loot from them personally, not legendaries, but say, more gold, maybe a stack of 10 gems, make them a little bit better than a running chest. Legs drop enough, goblin packs in rifts are still pretty exciting, I've maybe seen 8-10 packs of 5-15 goblins so far, but when you kill 10 and have a few small amounts of gems and crafting mats, that's not so exciting.
May 19, 2014DvMg posted a message on What people are really trying to say about the current loot buffPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
This.Quote from Vagrancy
So basically you're saying your level of fun and the success of this game is soley based on you having to find upgrades every single play session? Okay with that look, what happens when you've found everything you want are you then going to complain that there aren't more powerful legendaries or stronger items? I love it. The same has been out less than 3 fucking months and yet you cant stomach not getting and upgrade for less than a day?Quote from Perkynips
The truth of the matter is I play... played several hours a night... sometimes way later than I should until 2AM-3AM and had a blast while I was finding interesting things... that ends quickly and stops becoming fun.. it's great that you can have fun slaughtering monsters over and over again.. but that becomes so fun for me when I hit my obvious ceiling and when I go a week straight doing my same hour after hour runs and it stops becoming profitable those 5-6 hour runs turn into 3-4, and then 1-2... currently i've been playing 2-3 hours during this weekend because I have found other things to fill my time and honestly it's been good at this rate... but before this weekend I hadn't played in a week... is that a success??? I end the game not finding any of these sought after items at all? because I can't tolerate 5-6 hours of finding nothing but souls? I can't even reroll my gear because my gear hit it's ceiling from the 400 previous souls I drudged through?Quote from AeneasBK
The current system is too rewarding. People don't have to farm torment 6. Its an end goal in terms of progression (re: character power). But it should exist as a carrot for the NEETs and others with much more than average amounts of time to dedicate to a video game. Designing the loot system to allow people who play less than 10 hours a week to reach torment 6 within 2 months just means that people who play 50+ hours a week are done in a fortnight.
I'm not saying you shouldn't enjoy the buff at the moment; but if it were permanently this generous, there won't be any farming available by June. Why the people who can only play <10 hours a week aren't happy if they aren't in torment 4+ is (in my own opinion) THEIR problem. That is where the problem lies. People are finding loads of GOOD legendaries and label them as "crap" because they aren't Kridershot or Shard of Hate, Calamity of WoWoh.
you say this system is good m8?
People think they want BiS gear right now, but they really don't.
I have a leapquake barb that can farm t6 all day long, a monk in near perfect lightning gear, and every other class with shitty gear, guess what I get bored with first? The best geared. It gets boring extreamly fast when you can clear everything with ease and could quite literally take 100-200 hours for n upgrade, of an item you already have, with slighter better rolls.
The aim of the game is farming, its a long drawn out process which keeps people playing, when you get all your gear, you suddenly have no real goal or reason to play anymore.
Itemization does need fixed though, more build changing items need introduced, more special effects, its a very easy thing to do, at least right now, maybe ladders and 2.1 will bring a ton of them, who knows, but right now, you don't want to be able to faceroll t6, it doesn't make the game fun, once your at bis/t6, 99.9% of everything is souls.
May 17, 2014Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Well, if it's a 10 level rift yes.
The game is made up from a fixed exterior and the randomness is made up from 120x120 feet blocks called scenes, majority of which are random, but some, such as the ones that have events, or need to have a crossing or something, are fixed.
For example, you might get one of the sewer rifts that is a continuous hallway or a hallway with turns again and again, totally random, with a fixed exterior (the walls), or more of a fixed interior in a rift such as the heaven ones, they are almost always the same layout because of the bridges and large wells which are static scenes that can't be random to ensure the map actually works and can be traversed.
Highest level I've got to was 9, quite glad really, I hate the small multi levelled rifts, much rather have a huge one level rift.
May 16, 2014The 2.0.5 fix to gold find has been incredibly helpful.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I've got every class at 70, all geared to do t3/4, and my main 5/6, I'm ALWAYS low on gold, and actually ran out twice, same with craft mats.
Now I've cut down to playing my barb and monk, and with the gold buff, it's rolling in.
Gold isn't really power, if I have 1m, and another guy has 100m, it makes no difference really, any costs I'm going to find are going to be replaceable by farming/playing, if you are stupid and keep rolling an item when it's starting to cost 5m a roll, well, thats pretty retarded, leave it, otherwise, nothing really costs that much, gems rinse gold badly, but once you have crafted them, you always have them, that's just a startup cost.
May 16, 2014"We intended for the various runes of War Cry to stack together, but there's currently a bug involved that prevents that from happening. This should be taken care of in an upcoming hotfix, but we don't have a current ETA to share. We'll update thePatch 2.0.5 Hotfixesthread as soon it's been taken care of, though."Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Should be fixed soon, several other bugs (WD Fetish, Wiz Slow Time, are slated to be fixed 2.1, which could be months away), where as this is upcoming hotfix ala shards etc.

This, it has been raining legendaries with this buff, raining damn hard.Quote from BagstoneHowever, since the community buff is online, running rifts is just *the* way to go. Since I ran hours of 4 wizard rifts yesterday, I was able to get my Tal's chest from a clan mate (thanks Ot4ku!) and found my Tal's helmet in a rift as well. Lots of other interesting legendaries, such as a Shard of Hate that I gave away, a nice Moonlight Ward upgrade, or Inna's pants and a perfect Natalya's Slayer (on my wizard, yep).
Your loosing out big time by focusing on RiF this week, big time, the buff is too good to miss out as it doesn't effect Kadala.
Kadala is great for "specific" farming, as you've never been able to do that really, but shes just a bit of a bitch who gives you what you want maybe once a month haha.
May 15, 2014I'm sure it sucks major ass, but to say you are quitting over something that is blatantly obvious, a massive risk that everyone is aware of, is a bit dramatic.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
If you were writing an email, and the power went out, and it hadn't saved, you wouldn't quit using e-mail. Insert XYZ mundane example.
May 15, 2014Just RNG dude, also even if you feel like your doing t5 only slightly slower than t4, your likely not, (Not talking about YOU, just taking generally here btw) I almost always see more legendaries on one difficulty down from what we find comfortable, same goes for the whole group.Posted in: Crusader: The Church of Zakarum
Feeling lazy/just want to plow mobs, T4, want to pick up the challenge a bit, T5.
Everyone always gets more look on T4.
I'm loving this community buff though, it's rained all day, and I actually found bounties more fun due to the fact I could stockup on keys so quick, and having a chance at more legs from bags.
May 15, 2014Also just going to point out that it's basically a SoJ without the elemental damage, thus a very good ring regardless if you are using two or not.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Theres only three rings you ever want, Unity, SoJ and RRoG.
I have the best puzzle ring in the world, every stat is maxed, but it's a god damn puzzle ring, thankfully at least it's dex so it's on my monk whilst she waits for a SoJ.

What are you talking about...Quote from ShishianWell diablo fans its been a good time, but I will no longer visit your site. You promoting multi-boxing is a joke, and anyone who says that it doesn't use a 3rd party app or give an unfair advantage is also a joke. I only post here today to plead with those who still feel pride enough in themselves and their characters to play legit, without exploits/hacks, to continue to do so. It is very possible to do this it just takes a bit of work, luck and the dedication to not buckle under the pressure of those who think everything in game should be easy. And for anyone who cares to flame me or say I don't know what multiboxing is i would just love once to see someone actually have 4 characters without any special programs, be capable of having those characters all doing the same thing at the same time. To Blizzard please rethink your stance on multi-boxing before ladders come at least, To you multiboxers come talk to me when you can level up and gear a character the way the rest of the world does, then maybe I'll consider you an equal as a gamer, as it is now I would rather bring along a casual who just started and has no idea what to do. To Diablo fans, goodbye I wont be back.
Multiboxing is not an expliot nor against the ToS, what's against the ToS is control of characters/accounts without human input, if it's automated it's bannable, multiboxing uses "special software" as you call it, which isn't automation, nor against the ToS to send the same keystrokes to multiple clients, the important bit here is, is that a person is pressing button A which the program then sends to Client 1,2,3 and 4.
If someone used a bot, it's against ToS, if someone used one of those stupid bird things to keep pressing a button to send the commands, it's against the ToS, aslong as there is the owner of the account sat there inputting the master command, it's all legit and fine.
I don't multibox, I've duo'd a bit in WoW, but tbh, it's a pain in the arse, people think its really easy to multibox, but multiboxing brings up a shit ton of new challenges and frustrations, if anything it requires more "skill" than a solo player.
What does it matter anyway? Ok some guy is getting 4x as much gear as you, as a random example, but so is the guy who is playing 4x more than you, or playing on a difficulty 4x higher than you, etc etc, in a game like this especially, what someone else does, or what gear they have, has almost no impact on your gameplay, theres no PvP, theres no real balance, it doesn't matter yet.

I don't think it matters as much in a game like Diablo which is all about efficiency, in reality your on a timer anyway, that your trying to beat by getting faster and faster.Quote from PhaeriusAnyone else less excited for tiered rifts now that we know that they are timed? I just can't stand being on a timer in any game.

Well thats true, but doing them on T3 is still letting the mobs give you torment legs and set items, so it's not a waste to do, will just be more efficient after the patch.Quote from Seifa
Because caches in Torment don't scale with difficulty and they don't even drop class sets. As soon as the patch hit i won't feel like an idiot doing them on T3.
May 8, 2014DvMg posted a message on [Datamined] Legendary Roll Chances, Loot-Related Lag To Be Addressed In an Upcoming PatchThe drop rates related to IF that item slot drops, not the overall chance to get X item.Posted in: News
For example, Sword of DvMg - 5% chance, if a legendary sword drops, it has a 5% chance to be that specific sword.
Because it's all total RNG, no one can tell you where or how to get an item or how long it will take or your actual chances, just know that the longer you play, the higher the chance, loosely speaking.
Also, things that say 0%, thats not with smart loot, you can get ANY loot on any class, just much rarer than getting the class item on the actual class.

Apr 3, 2014DvMg posted a message on Confirmed Drop Chances of Legendary Crafting Mats Per Difficulty on SuperUniquesPosted in: News
That's 100% untrue, I've gotten Journals from Bounties and Campaigns, I have 14 of the damn things, across all difficulties, they aren't dropped from mobs, they are from objects.Quote from Angzt
Rifts don't have any of the SuperUniques which drop the Legendary Materials. You can only find Adventurer's Journal and Grisworld's Scribblings in rifts.Quote from Minon
Maybe. But i dont event want to think about that chance considering i've found ZERO leg crafting mats after doing ~130+ rifts. And hunting for archivist or other mob that drop the item i'm after without bounty isn't rl'y a good idea.
The other materials drop from specific mobs, plans are random, theres a great guide on these very forums.
